“What I love most about Tech and the graduate Nutrition and Dietetics program is the sense of community, even with our program being completely online,” McAlister said. “The professors are very personable, helpful, and really go out of their way to make sure we succeed and have fulfilling learning experiences. Tech is unique because you can actually get to know your professors and feel comfortable asking them any questions you may have. You don’t feel like you’re ‘lost in the crowd’ or just another student in this program.”
